What drew me to this article was not any sort of knee-jerk liberal
antifascism, that gets all warm inside at any talk of resistance to
fascism no matter what the source, but rather the description of
resistance by youth largely from the exploited classes attacking the
domination under which they lived with audacity even when it took the
form of a genocidal totalitarian police state of the most extreme form.
The actions these youth took were direct action, and in the case of the
Edelweiss Pirates, seem to have been largely autonomous. The Meuten
were apparently connected with communist groups, and I wish the article
had gone into differences between the practice of the Pirates and the Meuten, since this could have been a fruitful area for practical analysis, but of course an article like this is just a beginning.
